NH Mt. Washington Hotel owner amends trademark app

The company that owns the Mount Washington Hotel and Resort in New Hampshire has clarified the language used in its application to trademark the name.

Florida-based CNL Lifestyle Properties said Tuesday it has revised its application for the trademark to say it's just for lodging services, such as a hotel or inn.

Reports last week about the company's plans sparked concern that trademarking "Mount Washington" would cover other businesses that use the name.

CNL says it is focusing on three lodging businesses in northern New Hampshire that use "Mount Washington" in their names to get them to reach an agreement that would allow the Mount Washington Hotel to protect its name.

CNL bought the Bretton Woods hotel in 2006. The company they want to ensure the historic brand and name of the resort is protected.
